Enchanting Vegan Nature Lodge
A nature lovers paradise in the heart of the Garden Route, close to beaches, forests, Knysna Town, and many adventure activities. A perfect place to enjoy soulful retreats, romantic stays, a musical recording or a place to chill and explore this nature and adventure rich area.
If you love forests, nature, wildlife and birdsong with a pinch of magic along the way then our enchanting Vegan Nature Lodge is just for you.
We offer gorgeous & healthy Vegan meals. Breakfasts are available every morning, Dinners available only by request on certain nights. Please note we do not have a traditional restaurant and only cook and create our Breakfasts and Secret dinners to order.
There is a variety of unique creative and rustic spaces to stay in, a magical double storey Cottage that oozes bohemian charm and if you are a more adventurous green eco nature lover there are 'glamping' canvas tents on timber decks in the forest and rustic camping fields where nature surrounds and monkeys abound.
Whilst all our units are self cater, as a Vegan Lodge we are strictly a 'meat free zone' and expect all our Guests to respect our ethos whilst staying with us and hope you enjoy our environmentally friendly and animal loving life style.
There are a wonderful variety of unique creative and rustic spaces to stay in, from cute Woodcutter Cottages that once stabled our friendly horses, Ms Muffit and Bilbo Baggins to a fairy tale double story Cottage that oozes magical charm. For a more rustic experience try our spacious converted timber Barn Cabin.
We offer a collection of experiences, from enjoying our fine vegan country pop-up dining, and foraging for wild mushrooms in the forests, to learning to live with the wildlife roaming this magical place. We give guidance as to where to go and what to see, from a visit to our ancient forests, a surf at 'Buffs' or go shopping at our weekend country markets.
Natural forest weddings, that are enchanting, peaceful and a little wild . . . Say your sacred vows deep in our indigenous forest alongside a tinkling stream, and share that magical moment with your loved ones to the sounds of nature. There are a myriad of enchanting photo and wedding settings, from wild grassy fields, to meandering along forest pathways, a playful double swing, to riding a pair of horses. Should you care to dare, you can even say your vows on a canoe atop a dappled lily pond.

There is so much to do and... Read More
